Abstract

Progressive development of Finnish education policy has been analyzed! It has been highlighted that Finland was a good example of implementing improvements in school when it quickly rose in the international rankings after coming out of the shadow of the Soviet Union. Once it had the lowest rating in education and complicated bureaucratic system, which led to low quality education and greater inequality. Today Finland ranks first among all countries in the OECD {Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) and in the PISA {Program for International Student Assessment). The country also boasts a very equitable distribution in performance, even among the growing number of immigrant students. Many countries consider Finland to be a key to the riddle in the changes of education. Analysts say that many of those who visit Finland notice beautiful buildings of schools in which children are taught by calm and highly qualified teachers. They also note the autonomy of schools, inconsiderable intervention of the central school administration into its daily life, systematic methods of solving students' problems, and a targeted professional help for those who need it. It has been determined that Finland has built a strong education system, almost from a scratch. The country has established a production system of teaching and learning by increasing access targeted at investing in ambitious educational goals using strategic approaches in building the capacity of teachers.
